Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Britt feels really ready to make some changes but is worried about money :(

wake up earlier (read all 12 entries…)
gah!

I feel like SUCH a bum. Not only did I not wake up at 5:00 to go jogging but I slept in until 6:40.
So yet another day of me flying out the door with hot rollers in my hair and speeding down I-35 whilst trying to put on make-up. Ugh! Ok Dr. Phil says that there is always some sort of pay-off for our behavior otherwise we wouldn’t do it. For some people who are habitually late to everything it’s a sub-conscious attention thing…and some other things but anyway that’s not me. I’m usually VERY punctual… so I’m not sure what my pay-off is for this bad habit.
Maybe I’m trying to do too much. I am still exercising at night so I can accept the fact that for the time-being, I am not one of those 5am joggers. If I could just at the very least be ready to walk out the door on time, I would be a very happy lady.
Ok well I said this yesterday but…I’ll keep trying!
